Review from Kickstarter
@Devin, no need to worry as it's quiet normal. It's 'Indiegogo In Demand' (not regular Indiegogo) which can only be accessed after a successful crowdfunding campaign on either Kickstarter or the regular Indiegogo platform. Quiet a few backers asked for a way to back the campaign in July (as our campaign ran to late in the month but finished before traditional 'payday') so we're just trying to facilitate everyone. Most successful KS campaigns follow this path.
Our BackerKit survey will follow in a few weeks. The closer this is to shipping the better, as some backers may be moving house etc.
Thank you,
Derek.

I will say that I'm a little concerned to see this has been more than funded on here and then immediately hopped over to indiegogo before our backer surveys have even been sent. Can we please get some further information regarding that?

Awesome! Another marketing angle! Thanks!

@Michael, yes they are. Thanks.

Some park systems (Texas, I know) are now requiring that hammock straps be a full 2" wide. A couple of my hammocks that came out before this was required are slightly less than that. Will these meet the 2"wide requirement? Thanks!

Review from Kickstarter
@ David, Laura and Reality Storm are correct - we'll send a survey in a few weeks.
@Omuros - thank you!
@brocalreps - it will have an adjustable ridgeline and guylines and so will suit a variety of spans. Thanks.
@Beno we'll accommodate this in the BackerKit survey as well. Thanks.
@Karl - thanks. 12ft should work OK.
@Tyler, we'll accommodate this in the BackerKit survey. Thanks.
@Maxx - thanks. We had fun making that! If you scroll about three quarter ways down the page you'll find all dims under specs. We'll also do a descriptive video in a month or so, going through everything. Thanks.
@Marlon - I know exactly what you mean!

Review from Kickstarter
It good to see another outdoor product funded. Congratulations and I look forward to enjoying using your hammock !! I really like the mosquito netting that zips to the hammock, as we get a lot of them during the summer. And there is noting worse than a mosquito busing in your ear as you try to relax and enjoy the outdoors.

Review from Kickstarter
First of all, I have a very young friend who absolutely loves your video. Watched it at least 39 times this month and had good laughs every time.
Secondly, is there any possible way to get a picture of what packing the full set would look like size wise?
Congrats on the funding by the way!

Review from Kickstarter
Is it possible to add the tablet holder without the tent?
Karl Hedstrom
Review from Kickstarter
Congratulations on funding! Our office is at an old military base and all of the trees appear to be uniformly 17' to 18' apart, which I believe is to far for the hammock. I did see some trees about 12' apart, but they are on the small side. If I found some bigger trees 12' apart would the hammock fit? Thanks!

Review from Kickstarter
Hi, I would like to upgrade to the full package. How can I do this? Thanks
brocalreps
Review from Kickstarter
I was wondering how you will make the tarp. Can it be used other than an a frame directly over the hammock. Most of the time I am using a hammock rarely do I have 2 trees perfectly set up to then hang an a frame tarp above it. Can you tell me more about tarp and can it will be able to do and its construction. Thanks

Congratulation for this awesome project!!! I look forward to try it!! :)
Reality Storm
Review from Kickstarter
@David - I saw earlier they said that they are using Backerkit. I've not back a Crua campaign before, but others that use Backerkit usually take a couple weeks for that survey to come out, as it takes a while for Kickstarter to collect funds and compile backer information, which then has to get transmitted and processed by BackerKit.
Laura Labello
Review from Kickstarter
@David, they will be sending out a survey probably fairly soon where you can make your selections.

Review from Kickstarter
How do we select colors?

Review from Kickstarter
@Milan, the pillow position is exactly right for the sit-up mode. And the spreader bars are more than strong enough to last. Thanks.
Derek O'Sullivan
Review from Kickstarter
@Karl, yes absolutely. there are lots of adjustment points on the straps so it gives you a few feet to play with. And yes, they are tree friendly.
Karl Hedstrom
Review from Kickstarter
Did some deeper comment reading and it looks like the tree straps are pretty tree friendly. I saw a diagram near the bottom of the main page where it shows the length as 9 feet. It that the recommended distance between trees or can it be a little longer?
Milan Grahovac
Review from Kickstarter
A hope that those spreader bars are study enough so that can last long and not break. Even if there is a second pair. How long are they?
Milan Grahovac
Review from Kickstarter
That pillow holder looks a bit low for a head position, or our friend Dave is too tall?
Karl Hedstrom
Review from Kickstarter
I wanted to use this on my lunch break at work. Will the tree straps do any damage to the trees? What is the best and/or maximum distance between trees for hammock use? I am a little worried that trees might be to far apart. Thanks!
Derek O'Sullivan
Review from Kickstarter
@Brian, yes, no problem. There are carabiners which will clip on. Thanks.
@Rob, no problem. Welcome aboard! Thanks.
Derek.

Review from Kickstarter
@Derek Thanks!! Upgraded to double full kit :)
Brian Clark
Review from Kickstarter
Fair enough, for me this would go in my very wooded backyard connected to trees I own. I assume I can choose to use eye hooks with your design then, correct?
Derek O'Sullivan
Review from Kickstarter
@Rob we'll do manufactured price to make sure the burden on you is minimised. Thanks.
@Sam with spreaders on the quilt can be used as an under-quilt - so yes. Thanks.
@Brecht the under-quilt will be in one colour. Thanks.
@Adam - good to hear! And we'll try. Thanks.
@Joseph, blue or grey. Thanks.
@Denie - we're already working on it!!! Thanks.
@Gary - thanks for the note, and exactly right!!!
Derek.
Gary
Review from Kickstarter
@Joseph only the two colors sadly. It’s also for us to keep it simple and fast so we can get the hammocks faster :)

I want my hammock so bad. Can't wait to get it.

Review from Kickstarter
Will this be available in more than blue? Maybe green and brown or camouflage? Just be nice to blend better with woodland
Adam Singer
Review from Kickstarter
alsoo... any chance of the LED light as an add on?
Adam Singer
Review from Kickstarter
woohoo, can't wait to swing from some trees!
Brecht Debaes
Review from Kickstarter
Do you also have 2 colors for the underquilt, I only see the blue one for the blue hammock. Which color will it be for the grey hammock? Thanks Brecht
Sam Markson
Review from Kickstarter
With the spreader bars on, may the quilt be hung on the hammock in the winter model? I couldn’t tell from the video.
Robert Steele
Review from Kickstarter
When you ship, on the customs form, will you quote the manufactured price or purchase price? Reason I ask is that I might get two. However, at the current price, 2 units is over the $400 NZD limit and I'll be charged import fees. Thanks, Rob
Derek O'Sullivan
Review from Kickstarter
@Dave you can choose this in a survey after the campaign. Thanks.
Derek O'Sullivan
Review from Kickstarter
@Tom, yes, we are including a strap or line for the sitting position. Thanks,
Derek O'Sullivan
Review from Kickstarter
@Ryan, you can do that in the BackerKit survey post campaign. Thanks.
Derek O'Sullivan
Review from Kickstarter
@Ryan, thanks for your note - you are correct.
@Brian, we are not supplying ropes - rather tree straps or 'huggers', designed specifically not to girdle the trees so they are totally harmless. This is important so thanks for bringing it up.
Ryan Tyler
Review from Kickstarter
@Brian
This hammock is designed to travel. Eye hooks are great for permanent hammock rigs, but drilling an eye hook into every tree you plan on using this hammock system seems not only impractical, but also illegal in many public parks. Instead, this system comes with tree straps made of polyester webbing. Straps like these are designed to prevent trees from girdling and are even recommended by the Leave No Trace set of outdoor ethics. See:
https://lnt.org/blog/leave-no-trace-skills-hammock-camping
These guys really did their research. I urge you to reconsider your views of this company and their hanging practices.
Brian Clark
Review from Kickstarter
I pledged a dollar so that I could post a comment. I'd be willing to pledge the full $69 if even one of the depictions used safe hammock hanging practices. See:
https://www.chopmytree.com/just-hanging-out-how-to-safely-hang-a-hammock/
To quote the article:
"if you’re hanging a hammock from a tree, don’t make the mistaking of wrapping the rope around the tree. This can girdle the tree, destroying bark and the tree’s flow of nutrients. Girdling usually results in the death of the tree above the girdled area. Instead, use a drill to insert eye hooks in the tree, and then hang the hammock. It’s a much safer way for the tree, as well as stronger and more stable for the hammock." Please post back if you plan on changing this!

Review from Kickstarter
Hey Derek! I doubled my early bird basic kit pledge to purchase two sets, but now I'm really thinking about adding the tablet holder to both kits if that is a possibility. How much should I add to my pledge to add two tablet holders?
Tom
Review from Kickstarter
Maybe a stretch goal, or simply based on the funding pledged for the project, throw in an extra tree strap to enable the sitting position.
David Kennedy
Review from Kickstarter
Are the color options supposed to already been chosen?
Tom
Review from Kickstarter
I couldn't find them -- what are the stretch goals for this project?
Derek O'Sullivan
Review from Kickstarter
@Zombieversteher yes. And yes the carabiners are included. These are the only ones for the first production run, and yes. Will ship from Ireland, so no extra charges!!!
@Trond, keep your current pledge (as it was a super price!) and we'll accommodate you in the survey.
@Brian on schedule for September!
Thanks all,
Derek.

Review from Kickstarter
Any timeline for this amazing product to be completed? We can't wait to put these to use!
Trond Kristoffer Kristiansen
Review from Kickstarter
Will it be possible to add to my pledge after the campaigns end (via Backerkit or similar)? Or should/must it be done before the campaign ends on Kickstarter? I'm thinking of adding items to get the full set (but retaining the Super Early Bird price of my original pledge) :P
Zombieversteher
Review from Kickstarter

Will there be more color options besdie blue and grey? maybe green ;)?
Where do you ship from is it EU freindly shipping?
Derek O'Sullivan
Review from Kickstarter
@Michelle, yes you can. If you pledge for one now and increase or add it to the pledge amount.
@Luke thanks for the suggestion.
